Assuming this is your one and original question, and forgetting for the moment all the 
mis-targeted answers and messages,

The above error means :

1) that the Tomcat server which you are trying to access, for the URL that you are trying

to access on it, has what is called "security constraints".
In other words, it can only be accessed by certain users after they login, or maybe only 
by certain workstations within a certain range of IP adresses or some similar constraint.

2) that the workstation which you are using does not meet these constraints, and as a 
result Tomcat rejects the access attempt.

More than this, one cannot say, because you do not provide enough information for anyone 
to say more.
